Jordan Speith has 'special surprise' for Phil Mickelson

Post by bulls9999 on Mon Aug 10, 2015 7:16 am

In the interview from the WGC, Jordan was summarizing his play and added (at the end of the video below) that Jordan and Justin Thomas will be playing Phil and Rickie, and that he might bring the US Open trophy on each of the greens they play just to give something for Phil to shoot for....said he will see, he needs to find someone who will carry the trophy from green to green. I hope not, to me it would be like rubbing salt in a wound....but maybe it's deja vu as I hear Phil can dish it out too.

Fowler-Mickelson lose match to Spieth-Thomas

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. – It’s a sign of the times that Rickie Fowler, at the ripe old age of 26, was something of the elder statesman in his Tuesday practice round match at Whistling Straits.

Fowler teamed with Phil Mickelson in the duo’s normal “Tuesday game,” losing to Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, who combined (44) are younger than Lefty (45).

“We won the press, if that counts for anything” Fowler smiled. “No, they got us. Jordan and Justin got us, 1 up.”

The round has become a staple on the PGA Tour and has evolved beyond simple practice.

“Outside of actual tournament golf and being in contention, I feel like it’s some of the best preparation to when you are in contention or have shots that matter or on the line when you’re in a tournament,” he said. “You don’t want to lose to your buddies.”

When I hear of the reasons why Phil is not playing well because of all his 'other distractions', I chuckled when I read this about Tiger

Woods has been busy wearing many hats in recent years, not just the one that will hang in his nearly 6,000-square-foot bar and bistro. His golf course design company is developing five courses from Mexico to Dubai to Beijing. The website of the Tiger Woods Foundation lists a staff of more than 50. The foundation provides learning centers and scholarships nationwide for low-income students. Woods is one of 33 people on the foundation’s board of governors.

During his news conference, Woods was asked about a new sponsor, the motorcycle manufacturer Hero MotoCorp, an Indian company that backs his December charity tournament, renamed the Hero World Challenge.

“Is there a time when I’ll get back to India?” Woods said, repeating a question. “Absolutely. We’re looking at designing a golf course there as well. There’s a lot of different things that are going on for me positively in India.”

Somewhere in all the talk about Woods’s myriad business and philanthropic ventures — not to mention his responsibilities as a divorced father of two young children — there were questions about his dissolving golf game.

With a roomful of reporters cognizant that Woods has not won a PGA Tour event in two years and has missed the cut or withdrawn in nearly half of the tournaments he has entered this season, he was asked, “What’s the one thing you think could be holding you back right now?”

“Probably consistency,” Woods answered. “Just being consistent on a daily level.”


Abundant time dedicated to undistracted practice day after day often breeds consistency. It certainly did for the Tiger Woods who won 14 major championships from 1997 to 2008.
